With the former 8 MB file size limit of Discord (popular online chatroom), my friends and I found it difficult to share longer videos with high quality. However, Discord allowed some websites to embed videos hosted separately. I explored many different storage solutions, but the one I decided on using boasted 'unlimited' storage space under the condition that no files be greater than 10 MB in size.

Naturally, I went around this limitation by uploading the videos in chunks slightly less than 10 MB, then combining all of the chunks into one file once they were all uploaded. Additionally, the storage providers did not serve more than 8 MB at a time, so I borrowed a simple video streamer to once again go around this limitation. After that, I implemented a database to store video information and allow users to track their videos. This project has been discontinued since the hosting service stopped allowing unlimited storage, and other safety reasons.
